Re: BRYONET: Hoyer's Solution & chloral hydrate


Thanks Alan for the best answer yet to my question. When I was a student
I was told that Hoyer's was a carcinogen. Is there any truth to that?
Alternatives are useful of course. Richard's method works, if you are
patient, and have appropriate lab space etc. I still prefer Hoyers.
